César Trasobares presented an illustrated overview of Ana Mendieta's development as an artist with an emphasis on the work she executed in Miami from 1981 to 1983. The talk covered the contexts of Mendieta's body of work (site, performance, video, drawing and sculpture), including references to the work of other artists as well as examples of the historic and anthropological sources of her iconography.

César Trasobares is an artist and art activist based in Miami. During the past four decades, he has organized numerous exhibitions and written texts about Cuban American Art in the United States, as well as essays about various artists and his own practice.
